Fantastical Film Shorts by Georges Méliès, the First Wizard of Cinema

October 8, 2015 @ 8:00 pm - 11:00 pm


In 1916, film was a brand new art form and the Circle Theater (now home of the Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra) was brand new, too!  Around this time, Frenchman Georges Méliès was experimenting with cinema by using it for fantastical (not just documentary) purposes. Bring a blanket or lawn chair and take your place on the Monument steps for a three-hour marathon of two-to-four minute films crafted by Méliès between 1896 and 1913. Get ready for wizards, devils, and magicians, starring in film titles like “The Triple Conjurer and the Living Dead,” “The Four Troublesome Heads,” and Méliès’ most famous, “A Trip to the Moon.”  Presented by Big Car and the Indy Film Fest.
